Part of the update comes as users have made less and less drastic changes to their profiles, instead adding single images or changing their statuses. Facebook is also aiming to reduce the size of profiles loaded with various applications that also appear on users "Mini-Feeds" and "Walls". Users will also be able to delete items from those functions, but no new information about online behavior previously unavailable will suddenly appear, according to Facebook developers and executives.
Privacy concerns remains a staple and touchy issue for Facebook, since the Feeds appeared some users have called for there removal since information and activities is broadcast in a manner that limits discretion. Facebook also came under fire when some applications shared information about buying habits and product features to external sources, but since then those applications have had on-off features added.
As a user of both Facebook and MySpace, personal experience and the ease of using Facebook often leads me to visit that site more often than MySpace, but the overwhelming data and applications on some users profiles does make it hard to navigate at times. Perhaps the new upgrade will alleviate these pains and give the site a cleaner, swifter appearance.
